A sermon on John 5:31-40.  Jesus told the Pharisees not to believe His testimony but as the scriptures said they should corroborate testimonies with 2 or three witnesses.  Jesus offered 4 witnesses: John the Baptist, the works Jesus did, the witness of God the Father in our hearts and the witness of the Scriptures. Deuteronomy 18:14-22 Matthew 11:25-30

A sermon on 1 John 1:1-10 by guest speaker Dr. Drake Williams.  Christian Fellowship is rooted in Jesus and not in an interest.  Fellowship is rooted in the person of Jesus who brought and still brings life to his people.  Still, difficulty is a part of Christian relationships, even the best ones.  Jesus is even greater than the difficulties of Christian relationships.

A sermon in response to a question from the congregation about what it looks like to be a Christian who is maturing in faith.  Our growth is ongoing and a movement from one place to another in levels of maturity.  In this life we never arrive at a place of perfection.  There are many signs but five marks or signs of maturity are: 1] Falling in love with Jesus (Philippians 3:4b-16.  2] Recognizing more and more the depth of our sin.  (1 Timothy 1:15).  3] Dependence on God.

A sermon on how grace is the greatest expression of God's great love.  Grace is not permissiveness but blessing given when we actively work against being worthy of it.  God's varied gifts of grace: Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms / chosen in Him before the foundation of the world / predestined in love to be adopted as His children / marked with a seal - the promised Holy Spirit - our deposit guaranteeing our inheritance / dead in sin - the primary reason we need God's grace....
